The Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra’s latest concert will be at 7 p.m. Friday in the historic Academy of Music Theatre. The first half of the concert features the movie themes from “Hook” and “E.T.,” both composed by John Williams, as well as three numbers, including a medley of pieces from two different musicals, performed by the Jefferson Choral Society.
The second half features Antonin Dvořák’s “New World Symphony.” Written in 1893, it was inspired by Native American and African-American music and the composer’s “desire was to create a new national style of music for the U.S.,” according to the event listing.
